    There are no grounds for introducing a state of emergency – official

    Elections can only be postponed if a state of emergency is formally introduced – deputy Prime Minister Jacek Sasin emphasized on Wednesday. In his opinion, today there are no reasons to introduce a state of emergency.

    In an interview for the portal, the deputy prime minister emphasized that the election campaign was taking place to a very limited extent. “It moved from face-to-face meetings to the internet, to the media,” he remarked. As he noted, President Andrzej Duda travels around the country to be in those places where important things are happening associated with the fight against the coronavirus epidemic. “This should be the standard of leaders,” Sasin emphasized. When asked about the possibility of postponing the presidential election, he replied: “We have our own legal system and our constitutional system, which says very clearly: elections can only be postponed if we have a formal state of emergency.” When asked when such a state will be introduced, he emphasized: “There are no reasons today to introduce a state of emergency.”
